Baby Monitor for Parents' Peace of Mind

Jun 17, 2008
Pregnancy is finally over, now you are ready to go home with your little bundle of joy. Having a baby is a wonderful thing; it brings endless moments of joy to the new parents. Parents, especially first-timers, would love to spend every minute of the day and night with their baby, but it's just not possible. With a baby monitor, you can still hear your baby's breathing and hear every little movement, which is almost as good as being in the room with them.

A baby monitor is actually a radio transmitter that enables you to listen in on your little one at all times of the day and night. Baby monitors are compact, two-part gadgets. There is a transmitter that is placed near the sleeping infant and a receiver that the parents keep near them. The receiver will amplify any noise that your little one makes.

Different types of baby monitors are available, there are audio and audio-visual baby monitors as well as specialized ones that can even sense the body movements and breathing of the baby. For something as essential as a monitor, it's worth getting the best model you can afford.

The most popular kind of baby monitor is by far the audio monitor. It has two types, which are analog and digital monitors. However, interference from other wireless devices is an important issue to consider with analog monitors. Opting for a baby monitor with multiple channel selection can reduce this interference. A digital monitor that uses DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Technology) will not only give you more clarity, but is much better at reducing interference.

Audio-visual monitors are considerably more costly than basic audio monitors, but make some parents feel much more comfortable about being in a separate room. It allows you to see your baby as well as hear every movement. Some camera monitors work in color and some have infrared technology to work in poorly lit rooms. Always make sure that the microphone attached to the camera is ultra sensitive so that you can even hear a pin drop.

For complete reassurance that your little one is sleeping safely, you can also get a breathing and movement monitor. This consists of a pressure pad placed under the cot mattress, which will sense if your baby stops breathing or shows other signs of distress, and alert you immediately in order to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

Remember that there is nothing more important in the world than the safety of your child and a baby monitor is a great tool parents need to keep tabs on their infants, and a must have item to alert parents to any problems their baby may be having.

A baby monitor is a wonderful aid, but it is not a substitute for proper supervision, so always make certain you can get to your baby immediately if required. Reliable baby monitors can be purchased online at a variety of models and prices.
